Bruker ContourX-500


Fully automated 3D optical profiler 

The Bruker ContourX-500 optical profilometer is the world’s most comprehensive, automated benchtop system for fast, non-contact 3D surface metrology.

  • Proprietary tip/tilt optical head for measuring surface features over a range of angles with minimal tracking errors.
  • Gage-capable system with unmatched Z-axis resolution and accuracy.
  • Library of pre-programmed filters and analyses.
  • New USI universal scanning mode adjusts parameters for optimum results on different surface textures, contrasts, intensity and heights.

The ContourX-500 gives you the industry-recognised advantages of Bruker’s floor-standing WLI (White Light Interferometry ) systems in a much smaller footprint.

Advanced Automation

Bruker’s proprietary tip/tilt in the head is capable of measuring surface features over a range of angles with minimal tracking errors.

The auto tip/tilt functionality is coupled with the optical path in the microscope head, combining the point of inspection with the line of sight independent of tilt. This means less operator intervention is required, for greater reproducibility and faster time to data.

Together with automated staging and objectives, the ContourX-500 ideal for “measure-on-demand” industrial situations. It offers the advantages of a larger, floor-standing system, but with a compact benchtop footprint.
